Gaddafi aka Stakks Interview with Muzique Magazine
How did you come by your stage name?
I came up with my brand name first which is G4G Ent (Groomed for Greatness entertainment) at first it was BBE but after an, I got out of high school I changed it to something I could push for a long time. At first, I was performing as just stakks and after I got out of jail for a felony I changed it to Gaddafi after doing some research about the guy. I wanted something that would stand out and was recognized in broader aspects of the world.
When did you discover your love for your craft and what made you realize you wanted to pursue a career in it?
I discovered my love for music as early as I can remember like it’s just natural to me I’m making songs 24/7 without trying in my head. Beating on my desk at school, on the lunch table, lol I’m the definition of a rapping ass nigga. I’ve been engineering for about 2 years now which has deepened my love and passion for music as well.
To what or whom do you accredit your sense of style?
To be honest I give all credit to the highest. This was God’s gift to me so why wouldn’t I use it. I feel it’s not me speaking sometimes when I’m writing I be calling my spirit
On your current project, how did you come up with the concept?
I made bout 5 songs in two days no mistakes and going Kanye where part of that batch and I just was trying out different flows and carrying my vocals in different directions to see what I could possibly create that would stand out.
What are some of your greatest challenges, and what is your greatest attribute when it comes to your work ethic?
My greatest challenge to me at this stage was getting out the street mindset (Thuggin) and also marketing because my greatest attribute is that I make music non stop good music to and my ambition like I just know and when you know you know feel me
Are you the best at what you do in your opinion?
Yes, no explanation is needed I’ve always been my biggest fan and forever will be.
What are your plans for the near future?
My plans for the near future are to expand my business and partner with as many companies and labels as you know I believe music can change the world and I can’t wait to see what I can accomplish with the new connections I’m forging
Is there anyone you’d like to thank, any shout-outs?
Always thanking God first if not for him I’d be nowhere or nothing, my family, all my fans even the haters. And of course Estabrook Road Records ( ER The Label ) for trusting in me!
